New Kaiser Permanente Medical School and Other Provider-Sponsored Med Schools

The recent announcement that Kaiser Permanente will open its own medical school in southern California raised the question about other providers that may have medical schools.

A Kaiser Health News article mentions these providers that have launched med schools as well:

  • Mayo Clinic has had its own med school since 1972
  • North Shore-LIJ System co-launched Hofstra North Shore – LIJ School of Medicine [with Hofstra University] in 2011.

Providers are already heavily involved in medical education, and the partnership between North Shore-LIJ System and Hofstra University is itself a new trend, according to the article.
